I have almost 20 years of experience in managing the most comprehensive sports rights portfolio in Germany, Austria and Switzerland (14 years heading the sports rights business for the leading pay operator). I was responsible for budget, strategy, legal, administration across all sports and broadcasting. Correspondingly, I am familiar with the various entities representing such rights (federations, agencies, promotors etc.), strategies and tender procedures. I oversaw the strategic orientation and further development of the sports rights portfolio for the set-up and expansion. I am experienced with contract negotiation, design, audit and implementation with major rights holders and media partners, key account internal & external (DFL, UEFA, FOM etc.).
